Missionary Pack Rats

This is what greeted me this morning when I walked into the back room. The office elders had to clean out an apartment that we're vacating, and this is what they found. Holy Cow! Those elders must've been stockpiling church supplies for years. Unbelievable how much they had--55 copies of the Book of Mormon in English and Spanish, Bibles, Triple Combinations, 72 DVDs, 2 DVD players, 2 hymn books, a variety of church manuals, choir music and instructors' guides--one printed in 1972. Then there were the pass along cards, pamphlets in English and Spanish, family proclamations and baptism & confirmation forms numbering in the humdreds, maybe thousands! At least I can say that the commissary shelves are abundantly stocked.
Elder Condie and Elder Nield, the Slaughter Elders,(yes, we do have an area called Slaughter) were in to get an estimate for their car that was hit by a fire hydrant while making a U-turn. Or maybe it was the other way around.
Elder Horrocks and Elder Drollinger, 2 of the Baton Rouge Spanish Elders, also stopped by the office. It's always nice to have them pop in and say hi. I asked them what exciting things were happening, and they told me about their appointment and dinner with an investigator last night that went very well. The investigator even invited a friend who was passing by her house to join them, which she did. They found out that the friend was baptized when she was 12 but is less-active now. Also, the said they had $100  fried cheese sticks for dinner. I thought they were kidding. Nope. The lady had ordered them from South America, and that's what she paid for them. Suddenly the elders decided they were quite full.
